Every Sunday until November 29, 2020
9:00am – 12:30pmCategory: Series | Coordinator: Jonathan Brooks
Restoration Family, join us Sundays at 9:00am (service for families) or 11:00am (service open to all) as we come together for public worship. At this time, we ARE offering childcare for ages 5 and under during the 9:00am service only. This Fall 2020, we continue with our series in Acts: The Mission and Movement of God!
As we gather again, it's important we live out the gospel ethic of Romans 14 and show concern and care for ALL our members and attenders. We are keenly aware that folks are all over the spectrum of responses when it comes to the current Covid-19 climate. Rest assured, the elders of Restoration desire to shepherd and lead well during this season. We want to walk in step with the Spirit and the Word, honor our government, AND be mindful of the safety of our worshippers (and community as a whole). For those who plan on staying home at this time, our worship experience and sermons will be posted to our website, Itunes, and Spotify on Monday's at 5:00 p.m.
Stay tuned for more updates! In the meantime, here are a few guidelines of what to expect for our gatherings: WORSHIP GUIDELINES
Acts Series Information:
Imagine reading through the New Testament and skipping from John's Gospel to Romans and the letters of Paul without the book of Acts. Without a doubt, there would be absolute confusion and speculation as to "how did we get here"?!
Acts is the bridge.
As the events of Acts unfold, the Gospel and witness of God's Church starts in Jerusalem; but then it quickly explodes throughout Judea, into Samaria, and by the end of the book news of Christ's death and resurrection has filled Rome and is positioned to reach the whole world. In just 30 short years, the world is turned upside down by the message of Jesus. Disciples of ALL people being made. Churches planted in city after city.
Acts begins as a story already in progress (a continuation of Luke's gospel written to Theophilus), and it ends as a story in progress with Paul locked up, the mission still incomplete. It's a reminder to God's Church that we have been called and invited into this same mission. But we don't launch out in our own strength. Throughout Acts, it is clearly the Spirit of God empowering his people, emboldening their witness, and sustaining them to persevere.
God is faithful to build his Church.
He is the author of the mission and movement.
He goes before us.
But the Church must be faithful to proclaim Christ crucified and raised.
We must not waiver in our focus. We must not become ensnared in the cultural idols of comfort and convenience. Following Jesus' lead, we must sacrifically lay our lives down so that others might know and experience the grace of God. Join us on this journey in 2020 as we dive into the book of Acts!
